Peggy (Spicer) Sloniker was born September 17, 1934 in Webb City, MO. Her parents, Ben and Nora Spicer, four sisters: Loretta, Betty, Louise, Lucille, her only son, Charles Spicer all preceded her in death. She married William (Bill) Sloniker June 4, 1984. Peggy gained sons, Richard and Mike Sloniker (both deceased) and daughter, Tracy Boyd when she married Bill. She also considered his son-in-law, Roy (Dink) Boyd and grandchildren: Samantha (Russ) Hall, Buffy Russell (deceased), Amanda Qualls, Sarah (deceased) (Zach) Holden, Annie Holden, Michael Sloniker, Nathan Sloniker, Nikki (Oscar) Gonzales, Lucas (Sarah) Boyd and several great grandchildren as her own. Peggy had some hard times in her life but was extremely happy after marrying Bill. They traveled and enjoyed each other's company then ended up back in their home area of Joplin, Webb City and Carthage, MO. They began buying and selling at flea markets for a short time. Then Bill returned to attending church where he took Peggy and she received Salvation from Jesus Christ at the age of 65. They were faithful members of Emmanuel Baptist Church of Webb City then moved their membership to Crossroads Baptist Church in Carthage where they served as much as they could until health prevented. You rarely saw one of them without the other one being nearby. Dink and Tracy moved them both to Wiggins, MS to be near them. When Bill passed away last year, Peggy was lost without him and her health went downhill quickly. She always had a smile though. She was sometimes a little gruff, not much for a lot of words but if you took the time to know her, you saw her tender, caring heart. She will be greatly missed and we're so glad to have had her in our lives. Peggy will be laid to rest at the Biloxi National Cemetery at a private ceremony. Trinity Funeral Services is honored to assist the Sloniker family during this difficult time and asks that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the coming days.
